Slow-Cooker Lasagna

Ever thought of making lasagna in the crock pot? You will never go back to making it another way. It is not as fast as other crock pot dinners but thats because the prep time is 25 min rather than 5. That is much better than the 1-2 hours it takes otherwise. Post what you thought about it.
